good rest before the crux

El Balota 5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a  North America : Mexico : ... : Lower Virgin
awesome sustained tech climbing, the better you are at stemming the easier this is gonna be, up to a crux thats in a right facing dihedral, move out of this to a good right hold (easier if your ape index is ++) then easier climbing to anchors (at ledge with tree)...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
